How to shrink a mailbox in Exchange 2003
Posted on 2011-09-29
I am moving mailboxes from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 and have been getting a lot of problems with corrupted items so I have started backing up the contents of each 2003 mailbox to a pst file, then deleting all the mail from the 2003 mailbox and then moving it.
But what I've found is that even with the mail all deleted, the size of the mailbox is unchanged and takes a long time to move.
Is there a way to clean up the size of a mailbox after deleting all the mail inside it?
